The Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Awards are cash awards given to motivated women who are the primary financial supporters of their families. This year the club in Capitola is awarding $2,000 for this award! The recipients of the awards seek to improve their lives by gaining additional skills, training or education, but do not have the resources to do so. These cash awards are meant to offset any costs associated with the recipient’s efforts to attain higher education, including tuition, books, supplies, childcare or transportation costs.
The Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Awards is the signature project of Soroptimist International of the Americas. Soroptimist International of Capitola By-the-Sea is one of nearly 1,500 clubs that make up Soroptimist International of the Americas, a volunteer service organization for women in business management and the professions working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.
The application deadline is December 15th.
